Per Diocesan policy, The Basilica School of Saint Mary will follow the closure of the local public school authority normally followed for weather closures. The school will close beginning on Tuesday, March 17.
We will be closed at least until Monday, April 13. As of today, we do not know for certain the Diocesan calendar dates for Easter Break. We will keep you informed as the information becomes available.
Additionally, all after school and extracurricular activities are canceled or postponed until further notice.
The Basilica School of Saint Mary has been working with the Alexandria City Health Department, The Virginia Department of Health, and the Diocese of Arlington during the past several days. Please know the safety and well being of our students is of paramount importance during this coronavirus situation.
At this time, we have no confirmed cases of the coronavirus in our school, and the Alexandria Health Department has not determined the community-spread of the coronavirus in the City of Alexandria. However, for an abundance of safety, the school will be undergoing a full deep cleaning this weekend, March 14 and 15.
Parents and guardians should check emails for more details.
